opinion. they're discrediting themselves. risch lum b ris rush limbaugh has an audience who likes to listen to that kind of -- let me not characterize rush limbaugh, but it's becoming more and more limited audience. i think the vast majority of the american people want something done. they know we're trying to do the right thing, and they certainly don't want this country to be guided by the likes of rush limbaugh and that kind of nonsensical rhetoric. >> congressman, you mentioned your decades of experience in washington. it seems to be your sense by what i'm hearing that you do not believe then that this is a grassroots effort, that you believe this is being orchestrated. who do you think is behind it all? >> i think the industries that have benefitted from the status quo, some of the insurance companies, certainly some of the very conservative groups who don't want change. they're opposed to government involvement. now -- and it's easy for the american people to pick up on that. in fact, i have had people say to me, keep the government off my medicare. well, of course, medicare

politically. they don't want to make the same mistake here, wolf. >>> rush limbaugh compared democrats to nazis when it comes to health care reform. now, the white house is firing back. stand by. sometimes diplomacy is like a dance. sometimes it is a dance. check out the secretary of state, hillary clinton. she gets her groove on. we will show you how she is dancing in africa. a lot more right here in "the situation room." meet jack. recently turned 65. glad he's now got medicare on his side. but jack knows that medicare part b cpders only... 80% of medical expenses. so, he got himself an aarp... medicare supplement insurance plan -- insured by unitedhealthcare insurance company. a medicare supplement plan... lets you to keep your own doctor, helps you budget medical costs, and it picks up some of that 20%, potentially saving you thousands of dollars... out of your own pocket. if you're turning 65, or are 65 already, call now for this free information kit... and medicare guide. learn more about aarp medicare supplement insurance, and its wide range of coverage options, competitive pric
they do the right thing or not? let's take a look at rush limbaugh today and what he had to say about the democratic party. >> right out of adoofl hitler's playbook. now, what are the similarities between the democrat party of today and the nazi party in germany? well, the nazis were against big business. they hated big business, and, of course, we all know that they were opposed to jewish capitalism. they were insanely irrationally against pollution. they were for two years mandatory voluntary service to germany. they had a whole bunch of make work projects to keep people working, one of which was the autobahn. they were against cruelty and viv vi section of animals, but in the radical sense of devaluing human life they banned smoking. they were totally against that. they were for abortion and euthanasia of the undesirables as we all know, and they were for cradle to grave nationalized health care. >> i do not know where to begin, but i'm going to start with bob shrum. bob, i thought i heard everything. they are insanely against pollution. well, there you have it. anybody who is agai
: some anger on display gets stoked by the provocative meg phone of rush limbaugh who went so far as accusing democrats of wanting the socialized medicine of nazi germany. >> the obama health care logo is damn close to a nazi swastika logo. >> reporter: to encourage attendance, conservative organizers acknowledge they send e-mail alerts to members but argue the anger is real. >> i think that the politicians should be careful about so easily dismissing this many people showing up and participating in the process. >> reporter: virginia democrat jim more ran expects to get an earful. >> it's fine to be opposed. i don't think it is fine to come in with the objective of disrupting the townhall meetings. >> reporter: brian, with 535 members of congress there are literally hundreds of these meetings scheduled. members i have talked to said they don't want to cancel any of these events but they are concerned that some people might stay away. brian. >>> kelly o'donnell in washington tonight. kelly, thanks. >>> now to the white house and the view from there. we are joined to night from nbc
it is washington in the traditional sense. rush limbaugh lives in florida and you would think that he had some elected or pointed position within the republican party. tavis: but it is partisan politics. >> some of it is partisan politics and i understand partisan politics. i do not understand racist comments. what is very having the nobody seems to remember now what justice wrote in the dred scott decision. he wrote a black man has no right that a white man is bound to respect. this is the chief justice of the united states sprem court. supreme court. people seem to have forgotten that. that distinguished judges like bran dice and benjamin cardoza, distinguished in the law, did not always vote in spore of equality for people that were not white people. tavis: there is one thing i want to get to. we referenced president obama a couple of times in this conversation. how do you think he is doing overall? >> i give him an a for leadership. tavis: yeah. >> and it is still an unbelievable -- it's incredulous, still. i grew up -- i was born in 1935 in atlanta, georgia. and i remember the 1943 gubern
limbaugh is pushing the nazi theme, comparing on his website the obama health care logo with the nazi swastika and devoting plenty of air time comparing the president's the united states and house speaker nancy pelosi to adolf hitler. >> the obama health care logo is damn close to a nazi swastika. there are far more similarities between nancy pelosi and adolf hitter than between these people showing up at town halls to protest a hitler-like policy. that's being heralded by hitler-like logo. oh, another similarity. obama is asking citizens to wrap each other out, like hitler did. >> he's just like hitler. you know what that means? he deserves, right? that's where the actual republican party, the would-be responsible adult, opposed to health care reform. rnc chairman michael steele is going for the, who me? approach saying there is absolutely nothing to do with encouraging angry town hall protests. mr. steele said in a conference call, we're not encouraging people to be angry. some people that's how they express frustration, but that's not something deliberately coordinated by me or any
to go and be heard. and conservatives, like rush limbaugh, who, democrats say, are whipping activists into a frenzy, comparing president obama's health care plan to nazi policies. >> adolf hitler, like barack obama, also ruled by dictate. >> reporter: unions and liberal supporters of the president say they're now mobilizing, hoping they'll soon outnumber the critics at town halls. the white house hopes by remaining calm in the face of ferocious anger, the tactics of health care critics will backfire. >> we can discuss these issues without being uncivilized. it's the same thing i tell my six-year-old. >> reporter: to give an idea of just how nasty this battle over health care reform has become, capitol hill police say they are now investigating a possible death threat by a constituent against a democratic congressman from north korea. north california. >> chip reid in washington, chip thank you. now to the h1n1 flu virus, and concerns it could be stronger than ever this fall. it has hit the young in this country especially hard. at least 100 people 24 and under have died, and with 55 m
, president obama. it is against everything he is trying to do. you loud mouths like rush limbaugh, sean hannity, all these other folks that you listen to daily, even my good friend joe scarborough, it is ridiculous. all you are trying to do is disrupt something a needs to be done for all people. not just your people and the people you e-mail and try to get something done to disrupt something. host: let's hear from our guest. guest: we have been opposing big government for 25 years. doesn't matter who is proposing it. we proposed many of george bush's policies that were encroachments into people's lives. we opposed bill clinton's tax hikes. we opposed george bush role one's tax hikes. it has nothing to do with president obama. it has to do with healthcare reform going in the wrong direction. we've got a lot of ideas and none of them is it the current legislation and we think it takes it entirely in the wrong direction so we are opposed to the policy. host: how many members does freedomworks claim? >> we have over 700,000 members that we have built up the last 25 years. host: free to jo
this into people's heads. have they not? >> yes, they shout all day, rush limbaugh and all of rest of them, that this is a trojan horse for a single payer plan, and it is, you know -- it is possible that over time, this will morph into something that resembles single payer, but it's not right now, an the insurance companies are in no danger of going out of business under this bill, under any version of this bill. so if we do end up with a single payer plan, it won't be for many, many years, and people argue to the contrary are just lying about the particulars of this program. obama by design did not move to single pay because he realized that the country wasn't ready for it. >> we have news that cash or clunkers has just passed which we'll get to detail the ex-next a minute. this last piece of tape, the heart of the thing. the last question went into a log diatribe asserting the president would somehow get his legislation passed without congress. just go and make it happen, he's dictator obama not the president, and she ended with this piece of tape. >> i don't believe sincerely -- i don't
couldn't do anything worse in the party than what's going on. i mean, neither is rush limbaugh. i can do this. i can do this. >> what do you think of all these protests that have been going on? have you been watching this stuff? >> you know, i think the protesting, this part, the talking part, is great. that's what america is all about. i mean, you just did a story about soldiers and them passing away, and that's what they're fighting for, you know, people's rights to have voices and for those voices to be heard. i think when it gets violent it's just like -- it's ironic that it's getting violent and people are ending up in the hospital having to go to this system that they're protesting about in the first place. that's hysterical. they're going to come back -- they're going to come back and say, oh, my god, it needs fixing. there's something totally wrong with this. i was in the waiting room for hours and hours and it's, like, that's the point. that's why we're all trying to figure this out. personally -- >> go ahead. go ahead. >> well, personally, i just want everybody to understand wh
senator called the protesters un-american. she retracted that. rush limbaugh went on a long speech during his radio show where he compared democrats to nazis. he compared the president to hitler. i am wondering if the president has seen any of this. the nazi imagery has been condemned by jewish groups but i'm wondering if he feels anything about this. >> i think he has seen news reports. i don't know whether it is written or cable reports. regardless of where we are and the differences we have on an issue as important as health care, i know the president believes strongly that we can discuss these issues without personally maligning the person we are discussing this issue with. we want to do so in a way that respects the dignity of each individual. i think anytime you make references to what happened in germany in the '30's and 40's, i think you are talking about an event that has no equivalent. anytime anyone ventures to compare anything to that, they are on thin ice. it is best not deployed. we can have a discussion in our democracy about where we want to go and why or why not we want t
limbaugh listed an address of one of their headquarters in st. louis and urged people to show up. twitter feed telling people they were going to show up with guns at the headquarters. that doesn't strike me as the democratic, lowercase "d" style of protesting. i don't think anyone would really advocate that. i don't think it's proportionate to equate what's happening amoney these labor unions to threats of gun violence and charges of naziism. i just don't. >> we're going to get to john harwood and his interview later in the show. >>> this country's passed government-run health care before. how did johnson do it? it's very important for me to uh check my blood sugar before i go on stage. being on when i'm feeling low can be like a rollercoaster. it does at times feel like my body is telling me to do one thing... and, my mind, my heart is telling me to do something else. managing my highs and lows is super important. with my contour meter i can personalize my high/lo settings so it really does micromanage where my blood sugar needs to be. i'm nick jonas and never slowing down is my simple w
really.... >> rose: that's rush limbaugh. >> well, it's a lot of people. i went out on my booker to and i was trying to explain to people, if you want to be a national party again, you've got to win a seat or two in new england. and let me tell you something, people who lookike me and talk like me from the south, we're probably not going to do well in northeast harbor maine. colin powell will. olympia snowe will. >> rose: well, in the northeast... >> i just threw that out. there i own the northeast with mika with me. okay, mika, if you say so, i'll vote for you. but they kicked colin powell out of the party. you know what i learned on this book shower in it's fascinating. speaking in new england. i had a lot of people come up to me, a lot of older gentlemen especially come up to me and say "i used to vote for republicans when they were like you." said "i'm really conservative, i'm like a libertarian i'm so conservative." they said "no, you're not a hater." and what i realized on this book tour, two things, one good, one bad. the good thing is that moderates even people left of center, wil
that the republican tactics are going to backfire. when people hear rush limbaugh comparing the president of the united states to adolf hitler, the democratic party to the nazi party, when they see these kind of tactics going on, i think that's only in the end going to build support for what the president wants to do. >> house minority leader john boehner says the democrats are quote in denial instead of acknowledging the widespread. if we're dismissing these and if democrats are dismissing these questions about health care reform and how much it's going to cost that it could backfire on them? >> no one's dismissing the questions. everybody's willing to answer the questions. the senate finance committee's working very hard on this. the senate health and education committee has already done this. but you can't get any progress on this, at least if you're on the other side, by just standing there and screaming or by trying to flood these meetings and making it impossible to hold them. when you do this, all you're doing is i think assembling a whole bunch of joe the plumbers, the media's goi
and right and wrong. >>> and rush limbaugh comparing president obama's health care low e lowgo to a swas ka. how does the talk compromise is whole darn country, contessa? >>> then women, this is the result, contessa, women have been driven to drink. the statistics show it. that story of the wrong way driver who killed seven, including four children, may not be an isolated case. a new report suggests women are drinking more than ever. >>> swine flu in schools. a live news conference this hour to announce the government's plan of action. dr. nancy snyderman will join us. it is 9:00 a.m. friday morning. nice to see you. >>> welcome. a nice day. >> this is big story of the morning here. this was supposed to be a town hall in tampa, florida. hosted by congresswoman, kathy castor. >> you work for us, you work for us. >> police estimated 1500 people tried to cram into an event. they jammed up against the doors. one guy says he was actually man handled, may end up going to police about it. >> one of them took my arm and doing a arm -- arm twist, tore my watch off, then the other one grabbed me by t
are dying every day because of that. >> if that all wasn't enough, conservative radio host rush limbaugh is fanning the flames by making analogies comparing president obama to adolf hitler. on his radio show yesterday, he said, quoting here, the obama health care logo is damn close to a nazi swastika logo. that prompted strong words from the white house. >> i think any time you make references to what happened in germany in the '30s and '40s, i think you're talking about an event that has low quibbling. and i think any time anyone ventures to repair anything to that, they're on thin ice. and it's best ndenot deployed. >> so everyone's all fired up here. so asking what do you think about this, how everything's all ramped up in this debate about health care and the town hall meeting. so i posted this question on my facebook page. got a huge response. this is what hal wrote -- i think people are fed up with no answers, answers. they want real answers to real questions and they're not getting them. that's why hal thinks the protesters are really getting rally at these town halls. allison wro
